I live in Hamilton, Ontario and have been an avid gardener all my life. About ten years ago, I started delivering herb programs at the Royal Botanical Gardens. Since that time, I have offered more than one hundred herb, food and gardening programs at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Mohawk College, City of Cambridge and Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. I have spoken to a variety of audiences including horticultural societies, garden clubs, universities, shopping malls, garden shows and general meetings. Audiences have included First Canada Place, McMaster University, Canada Blooms, the Ontario Garden Show and the Harbourfront Festival of Herbs.

Topics include: Chilies, Garlic, Ginger, Glenn's Top Ten Herbs, Landscaping with Herbs, the Versatility of Herbs, Native Canadian Herbs, Spices, Lemon Herbs, Thai Herbs, Herbs of Provence, Mexican Herbs, Healing Herbs, Edible Flowers, Eating Spring Flowers, Herbal Teas, Herbs for the Holidays (Herbal Gifts), Cooking with Herbs and Growing Herbs in Containers. I can tailor a program to a specific audience and can include cooking demonstrations in the program. Program includes a mulitmedia or slide presentation, animated talk, questions and a handout.

I have appeared on a variety of local, national and international media promoting herbs, making appearances on CITY TV, TVO, Discovery Channel, Life Network, Women's Television Network, NBC and CBS Affiliates and CBC Radio. I have also written articles on herbs and food including a past regular feature columnist for the Royal Botanical Gardens magazine, Pappus.
